Richard Simkin

Born on November 5th 1850 and was born in Herne Bay Kent, England, Richard Simkin grew up in Aldershot, Hampshire, marrying his wife, Harriet, in 1880, and it is also believed he was a volunteer in the Artist's Rifles. He was employed by the War Office to design recruiting posters. He is probabaly best know for his series of Army regiments including Yeomanry and Colonial regiments, a weekly supplement print to the Army and Navy Gazette. In 1901 he created a series of 'Types of the Indian Army' for the Gazette. He obtained much of the information from the Colonial and India Exhibition of 1886. Over a period of over 50 years Richard Simkin produced thousands of watercolours of Army uniforms and watercolours of Army life and campaigns. Many of these paintings can be seen in regimental museums and messes. Simkin also contributed illustrations to The Army and Navy gazzette, the Boy's Own Magazine, and The Graphic and many paintings were used in books and publications of Raphael Tuck and Sons. Richard Simkin died on the 25th June 1926 at home at 7 Cavensigh Street, Herne Bay. Many of richard Simkin's antique prints have been reproduced as prints by Cranston Fine Arts and are available from our websites, along with many original antique prints which are hard to find these days.

 Singling, Alsace, 20th August 1944.  Following the fall of  Metz to Patton's 3rd Army, the Allied offensive continued to push deeper into the Saar region.  The fight for the small hamlet of Singling was merely one of numerous actions, but in the words of General Fritz Bayerlin commander of the crack German Panzer Lehr Division who witnessed the battle by the US 4th Armoured Division, it was 'the perfect tank attack'.  Commander of the task force bearing the brunt of the action Col. Creighton W. Abrams and his men demonstrated the tactical skill and flexibility which, in five months, had made it one of the most formidable forces on the battlefield.

 When 250 well armed and trained rebel tribesmen attacked the small SAS outpost at Mirbat few would have given good odds on their survival.  At the height of the battle Corporal Labalaba and Trooper Savesaki, both Fijians and both wounded fought off relentless assaults by the attacking Adoo.  Firing a World War II vintage 25pdr field gun at point blank range Labalaba finally fell to a snipers bullet just as Captain Kealy and Trooper Tobin reached the gunpit to aid its defence.  Within minutes however Tobin was dead, but Kealy and the remaining defenders critical position was saved by the timely arrival of 2 Omani Strikemaster jets, and helicopters carrying 24 men of G Squadron.

18 June 1815: At Waterloo the 33rd took up a position with Major-General Sir Colin Halkett's 5th Brigade in the right centre of the British line. During the day they withstood the French artillery bombardment, but as that fire slackened, the order +Prepare to receive cavalry+ was heard as wave after wave of French cuirassiers, dragoons and lancers advanced towards them up the slope. The redcoats formed squares; the front rank knelt, the butt end of their muskets resting on the ground, their bayonets fixed. The second rank crouched, while the third and fourth ranks stood ready to fire. When the densely packed horsemen were within thirty yards, they opened fire and their musket balls crashed into Ney's cavalry. Riders and their mounts tumbled into heaps just beyond bayonet-reach of the kneeling front ranks. French horsemen who rode around the squares of British infantry suffered a similar fate on each side.  The 33rd fought off four successive cavalry charges, each one resulting in heaps of dead and dying men and horses littered in front of the squares. In the intervals between these attacks, the French artillery took its toll on the British infantry. Within the squares it was impossible for a man to move a yard without stepping on a wounded comrade, or upon the bodies of the dead. The Duke of Wellington rode up to Halkett, who said, +My Lord, we are dreadfully cut up; can you not relieve us for a little while?+  +Impossible!+  +Very well my Lord, we'll stand until the last man falls.+  By 6 pm the French cavalry had been destroyed as a fighting force. The 33rd and the 2nd Battalion 69th, united to form a single battalion due to their losses, then had to face the final attack by the infantry of Napoleon's Imperial Guard.  The painting shows the 33rd in square, with the burning farm of La Haye Sainte beyond. Inside the single square formed with the remnants of the 2/69th, the Colours of both regiments can be seen. (The King's Colour of the 2/69th had been captured by the enemy at Quatre Bras two days earlier).

Action at Nery, 1st September 1914.  During the fighting retreat from Mons, battery L of the Royal horse artillery bivouacked by a small town of Nery. Their temporary halt was interrupted during the early morning cavalry patrol warning of the imminent arrival of a large German force of cavalry, infantry and artillery. almost immediately German shells began bursting amongst the battery, accompanied by a rifle and machine gun fire. 3 guns were knocked out before they could be brought into action and two more were disabled soon afterwards, while the British gunners sustained heavy casualties. the remaining no. 6 gun with a scratch crew managed to maintain a steady fire for some two hours inflicting heavy casualties on the Germans until reinforcements arrived, driving off the surviving German unties. Three Victoria crosses (one posthumously) and two French medaille militaire were awarded and two NCOs were commissioned after the action.
